In this post betting tips, previews and starting lineups of Group H EURO2016 qualifiers: Italy-Bulgaria, Norway-Croatia and Malta-Azerbaijan.
ITALY - BULGARIA
Italy hasn't showed a great performance vs Malta but had the best in the end and now italian team is leading the Group H.
With an hypothetical win vs Bulgaria, Italy would secure the qualification to Euro 2016.
Bulgaria still can't count on the goalkeeper Stoyanov and the forwarder Bojinov.
First leg ended 2-2 but considering that Bulgaria played really an awful match vs Norway two days ago we do not expect a good performance vs the organized italian team.
Italy is not the strong team it was on past but coach Conte had the merit to give an identity to his team even if there are no top players.
We expect the HOME WIN, not only because Italy is stronger than Bulgaria, but mainly because of the weak qualities of the opponent.
ITALY: Buffon, Darmian, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, De Rossi, Florenzi, Soriano, Candreva, Vazquez, Pellè.
BULGARIA: Mitrev, Bandalovski, A. Aleksandrov, Bodurov, Minev, Manolev, Popov, Chochev, Milanov, Dyakov, Mitsanski.
HOME WIN (1.50 Matchbook)
UNDER 2.5 (1.72 Matchbook)
NORWAY - CROATIA
Croatia played with slow rhythms for the whole match vs Azerbaijan, hoping in an individual move of its champions but Perisic, Mandzukic and Kovacic failed the occasions they had.
We are probably going to see a different Croatia vs Norway.
Azerbaijan tried to lower the rhythm of the match and defended with a low baricenter, while Norway instead, usually plays with a lot of competitiveness and at the same time Croatia will put more effort into the match.
Considering also the first leg results (5-1 win for Croatia) we choose CROATIA DOUBLE CHANCE and AWAY WIN for the braves.
NORWAY: Nyland, Høgli, Hovland, Elabdellaoui, Forren, Tettey, Johansen, Henriksen, Samuelsen, Søderlund, Berget.
CROATIA: Subašić, Vrsaljko, Ćorluka, Vida, Pranjić, Perišić, Rakitić, Modrić, Brozovic, Pjaca, Mandžukić.
CROATIA DOUBLE CHANCE (1.28, 888Sport)
AWAY WIN (2.20, 888Sport)
MALTA - AZERBAIJAN
Malta showed again it is not the weak team of the last years in the previous match vs Italy.
Coach Ghedin has made a great job and his team can now count on a good defensive solidity. Indeed Malta has only conceded 8 goals in the last 7 matches. The problems are in the offensive phase with only 3 goals scored and in football is extremely hard to win a match without scoring.
Azerbaijan also has improved his performances after the change of the coach and the last match vs Croatia is a confirmation.
We do not expect a lot of goals here since both teams prefer to play counterattacking and keep a low baricenter.
MALTA: Hogg, Borg, Z.Muscat, Agius, A.Muscat, R.Muscat, Fenech, Briffa, Failla, Effiong, Schembri.
AZERBAIJAN: Agayev, Garayev, Mirzabekov, Hüseynov, Sadygov, Dashdemirov, Nazarov, Amirguliyev, Ismayilov, Kurbanov, R. Gurbanov.
AZERBAIJAN DOUBLE CHANCE (1.34, Betfair)
UNDER 2.5 (1.45, Betfair)
